With a surplus of options on the market, it can be hard to know what makes a matcha green tea powder stand out among the rest. This article provides tips on how to find the perfect matcha green tea powder for you. 

 

1- Check where the matcha powder is sourced from 

It is believed that the best matcha in the world comes from Japan. For this reason, it's best to look for ceremonial-grade matcha sourced from Japan when purchasing matcha powder. Matcha powder from Uji, Kagoshima, Nishio, Shizuoka, and Kyushu, where matcha production is most abundant, should be your first choice. Matcha sourced from anywhere else may be poorer quality. 

 

2- Watch out for non-powdered matcha green tea 

High-quality matcha green tea should always come in powder form. Because of this, you should avoid products that claim to be matcha but come in tea bags or loose-leaf form. These products likely contain very little matcha tea. 

 

3- Pay attention to matcha powder grade

When buying matcha, it is important to pay attention to the matcha grade. Ceremonial grade matcha is best for making beverages, while culinary grade matcha is best for baking and recipes. Due to this, you should look for matcha products that have “ceremonial grade” listed on the label. 

 

4- Go for unsweetened

One way to wean out bad matcha products is by reading the fine print. You will find that many matcha products contain fluff ingredients like artificial sweeteners and flavors, which leaves less room for high-quality matcha powder. For this reason, it is best to look for matcha powders that are unsweetened and contain only ceremonial grade matcha sourced from Japan. 

 

5- Expect a higher price 

When first shopping for matcha powder, you might be surprised by its price. A high-quality ceremonial matcha powder that contains 30 to 60 servings can cost from $30 to $60. While this may seem expensive, you should look for products within this price range to ensure you are getting a high-quality product.  

 

Conclusion 

When buying matcha, you should look for a ceremonial grade powder that is unsweetened and sourced from Japan. Our Ceremony Organic Matcha Tea checks off all of these boxes, making it the perfect option for all your matcha powder needs.
